Faith Through The Ages - Hebrews 11:13

1. Compelling Faith (Forward Looking)
2. Confirmed Faith (Established)
3. Concurrent Faith (Bi-directional)
4. Consummate Faith (Fulfilled)

1. Compelling Faith . Forward Looking .
Hebrews 11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

2. Confirmed Faith . Established Faith .
Hebrews 8:6 But now hath he OBtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

3. Concurrent Faith . Bi-directional Faith .
John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

We look back into the scriptures.


John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. (Note: Isaiah 52:13 through 53:12)

We look ahead to Christ’s return.


Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

4. Consummate Faith . Faith Fulfilled .
Matthew 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Do you have the faith required by God?
Luke 18:7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    • Brethren, I uploaded the "CC" or, "Closed Captioning," or "Subtitles," (some folks call the written text different words), onto the Genesis 37:1-11, "Joseph and his Jewish Dreams," video. I do hope that "CC," or subtitles, are a help to those who cannot hear properly or cannot fully understand my words. Alan
    • In December 2017 I made this video, in English, on Taiwan, on Genesis 37:5-11. I do hope that it is a blessing and an encouragement to your life.   "Umbrella Rock." On the East Coast of Taiwan. Photo by Alan  
    • Concerning point 2A.  Surely it was because Cain did not choose the best for God as Abel did, but just chose randomly.
    • Hope you enjoy the relaxing photo of a fine fishing location in Bennett Springs State Park, Missouri. Bennett Springs State Park is near Lebanon, Missouri, has some fine fishing (Rainbow  & Brown Trout) areas, hiking trails in a scenic country setting.

    • I put "CC" or "subtitles" on the study, on Matthew 24:29-31, "The World-Wide Gathering & Mourning of the Jews" in order to have a printed text to read.  
    • Hope the devotional music by Christian Hymns & Gospel Music is a blessing to all of you.   In Christ, Alan
    • Bro. @John Young, Thank you for your advice as well it is much appreciated. I was nervous taking the pulpit for the first time and knew my delivery and presentation would be lacking. That wasn't my intention but as nervous as I was it wasn't surprising. One thing I struggled with was making a outline clearly defining each point so I just went through the passage of Scripture. I will focus on getting the hearer from thinking "that's some nice information", to thinking, "I need to d
    • Bro. @Alan, Thank you for your input and teaching me how to upload my sermons. God bless!
    • The content of the sermon was really good and put together well. Aside from delivery and presentation, which will improve with practice, its important to remember that a sermon is not just to convey content but also to move the hearer to action of some sort. So with each point in a sermon, the effort needs to be made in getting the hearer from thinking "that's some nice information", to thinking, "I need to do that". For example, after your message, your pastor got up and gave them a call t
    • I thought that the content of the message, the scripture references, the doctrine within the message that you presented, were all fine. Unless I missed something, I could not find any errors. All in all, it was a fine message on Romans 1:16-17. Your comments on Habakkuk 2:4 were real good. The way you presented the doctrine of repentance was noteworthy. I especially appreciated how you mentioned that, after his conversion experience, Paul had, "... the fruit of repentance..."  As far as upl
